There are many occasions when you or your family member faces an accident due to the negligence of federal or state employees. In such a situation you need to file a case against the government employee. According to the federal tort claim act, the citizens have the right to sue the United States in a federal court for most torts committed by persons acting on behalf of the United States.

We handle cases involving aviation, maritime law, and negligent healthcare at government-owned or military hospitals. There are many examples of mistreatment caused by the government employees; a doctor dealing with veterans might neglect the patient, and his mishandling can cause a death of the patient.

Suing the federal government for a wrong doing is different from other type of cases. You need to hire attorneys with specialized knowledge and expertise in dealing federal cases. Attorneys at Sky Law Firm, P.A., have a proven track record litigating claims against the U.S. Government.
In 1946 the United States Congress introduced the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA). FTCA permits the private parties to sue the United States in a federal court for most torts committed by persons acting on behalf of the United States. The FTCA provides a limited waiver of the federal government’s sovereign immunity when its employees are negligent within the scope of their employment.
Furthermore, the FTCA is limited by many exceptions under which the government is not subject to suit, even if a private employer could be liable under the same circumstances.
